Hello from rainy but beautiful Hamburg.
It’s been almost two weeks since we left Greece for good and believe me it was really hard to say goodbye, specially in the middle of the summer, but we did it!
Moving abroad is one thing, but taking a road trip around Europe during the procedure was a crazy idea that became a wonderful experience to remember for the rest of our lives. We packed our household, jumped in our car and drove about 2,200km to Hamburg – Germany which will be our station for a couple of months (depends on my husband’s work).
I don’t even know where to begin with this trip! Five countries in 7 days, Serbia, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic and finally Germany, I loved each and every one of them and I couldn’t pick a favorite even if my life depended on it. I promise in the future I will write about our experiences in all these countries but at the moment it is impossible to find the time to write a proper post since we are typically still on the move.
So here are some of the things we saw those days …
Serbia – Belgrade
Serbia and particularly Belgrade is not a famous destination yet but that’s exactly the reason why one should visit it while it still holds it’s original spirit. I loved walking next to Danube river and around the Bohemian quarter of the city, but words are not enough to talk about Serbian food! You may not have heard of it but Serbian cheese and cold meat are excellent to start with but what really stole my heart was those unbelievably yummy mini kebabs.
Hungary – Budapest & Szentendre
One of my favorite cities ever is Budapest probably because we’ve been there with my husband a couple of years ago as newlyweds. Another city built across Danube river with wonderful architecture, excellent food and legendary transportation. One of our favorite things to do is take the ride with tram No2 and enjoy the view of Danube and Buda. Take a day trip to Szentendre, a town only 30km away from Budapest and you won’t regret it. You will find there some of the most beautiful workshops from all kinds of artifacts. Personally I loved the porcelain plates 😉
Slovakia – Bratislava
If I had to describe Bratislava in two words I would have to go with “hidden gem”. The old town in the center of Bratislava is where you need to be once you visit. It is full of pubs, bistros and young people and it’s definitely one of the newest and hottest destinations in eastern Europe.
Czech Republic – Prague
What can I say about Prague, the city that looks like a fairy tail! The architecture, the monuments, the river with the famous bridges, the things to do, the food, Prague has it all. Unfortunately Prague is a very famous destination and it’s hard to enjoy it’s beauty with all these crowds and therefore pictures were focusing on top of the buildings. Here’s also a failed attempt for a selfie (trying to convince my husband to get a selfie stick :p ).
Our road trip might be over but our moving abroad adventure just began and I haven’t even told you anything about Germany yet! Hopefully I will be able to come back to my ordinary program soon and share with you more pictures and some of the most amazing recipes I came across during this road trip.
Till next time…
